Everything is better with bacon!!!

the Ingredients

Getting Ready to Mix it Up

Putting them in the Oven

All Cooked

On my Plate

Bacon Wrapped Meat Loaves

1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 cup lowfat cheddar cheese, shredded
1 whole egg
1/4 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup green bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon beef bouillon granules
1 teaspoon salt
6 strip bacon, cut into  halves

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients except bacon. Shape mixture into 6 loaves. Crisscross 2 half slices bacon on each loaf, tucking ends under loaf. Place loaves on rack in shallow baking pan. Bake uncovered 50 minutes.

I crisped them up under the broiler for about 5 minutes. They tasted very meaty! We served this with Ranchero Corn.
